of those voices and concerns. judy woodruff reports. >> woodruff: from new hampshire to iowa to montana, and points beyond, americans have flocked to town halls to voice their opinions on healthcare reform this august. in charleston, west virginia, larry medley stood outside a recent meeting held by democratic senator jay rockefeller. his sign said it all. >> i don't think it makes a lot sense to, so quickly, surrender 1/6th of our economy to the government.v< i think we... i'm not saying that present h.c.r. system is perfect at all. i'm not saying that at all. certainly, i think that we don't need to jump in and throw the baby out with the bathwater. >> woodruff: amy bord was part of a small meeting with rockefeller. her son has leukemia, and she and her husband recently saw their insurance cut off because it had reached a cap on payments of $1 million. >> we want to pay what we owe, fairly. but we're not able to do that, and nobody's out there to help us. but if we didn't work and we didn't contribute, we wouldn't have to worry about it. and we'd be able to spend the time we do have

committee, chairman max baucus of montana now suddenly he's gone away, it seems like, or has he. how do you read that. >> there are two chuck grassleys. the one without premiers in washington, but then there is the one without went home. and i gather some of the town hall meetings are happening in iowa, and iowans are good about this thing, are triple the size of normal. he goes home and listens and gets threatened we're going to defeat new 2010. he's up in this coming election. and he doesn't want to get defeated. and that's been, i think, the overall effect of this august. which is a lot of people and parts of the country, the health-care reform is recently po popular but in the midwest in particular and some areas of the south and places like florida, it's quite unpopular. so he has to face the fact do i really want to lose my seat over this. and so i just think it's in some sense a democratic process that is creating the other chuck grassley. >> i think there is en another chuck grassley which is -- >> three chuck grassleys. >> exactly. you know, it's some horrible science fiction movie
